Avatar n tn Wow! This seems to be a occuring problem with 3 year olds. My son who turned 3 in January has been complaining since June 08'. He had getxrays in both legs; normal. Doctor now wants to get blood tests to check for cystic fibrosis. My son cries in the night, the pain wakes him ; through the day he runs and moves around like nothing. Well, hopefully results come back normal.

Avatar m tn Boy, I believe you when you said, "I have Googled and read and read and Googled until I just couldn't read anymore." The length of your original post shows how much you care. Hopefully, I can help. And I'm pretty sure I have a few sources on tap that you haven't found yet. I've got a lot to say and I doubt that I will get it in all tonight. And then I will be out of town for two days. I want to talk about the ADHD diagnosis. His age and place in school.
Avatar f tn My 18 yo son has this disorder and has shattered cribs and beds. Last year we stayed in a hotel with tempurpedic type (memory foam) mattresses. He didn't bounce. He now has a memory foam pillow that he takes everywhere he goes. We also put a memory foam topper on his bed. It has really cut down his "bouncing". He has the form of RMD where he bounces his head or bangs his head against the bed. There is no rebound with the memory foam so he bounces much less.

Or can his doctor petition the insurance company for an exception? But other things that you can do. I highly recommend getting the book, "The ADD/ ADHD Answer book," by Susan Ashley. It will answer many of your questions about ADHD for the next decade or so. Also check out these two links from the childbehavior site.
Avatar f tn You had a lot of different 'symptoms' already in 07 but without any evidence of MS and that was only 3 years ago, so from my understanding it doesn't actually suggest MS is likely now it's returned in 2015 with even more 'symptoms'.........I would strongly recommend you stop being 98% convinced it's MS and try to be 100% open minded because it truly may not be MS! Food for thought..........
Avatar m tn Last night he threw the remote at the TV and was sent to his room where he defied his mother and myself over the course of 3 hours. He put holes in the wall, smashed light bulbs that were in the lamps in his room and screamed at the top of his lungs the entire 3+ hours. Do I think that he has ADHD? NO! I think that he wants attention because there is a new baby in the house and he doesn't want to accept that he isn't the baby anymore.
1391069 tn?1292237285 Also its worth looking at some of the other posts (and answers) by parents to get a feeling for problems that 3 and 4 year olds have. If you do still have concerns after more research, I would look for a different doctor. Probably a pediatric psychiatrist or psychologist. Hope this helps. Please feel free to post if you have any more questions.
Avatar f tn Your daughter is three years of age? ADD is Attention Deficit Disorder. ADHD is Attention Deficit Hyperactivity disorder. Even though they are both attention disorders, they are quite different. Your daughter is three years old; she is going to be hyper, she is going to have more energy than your whole family combined, just as well as every other three year old out there. I have a three year old of my own which inhibits every behavior you mentioned.

You can find a lot of good advice here if you ask for it.
Avatar n tn Correct usage of pronouns is something that even typical 5 year olds struggle with. I can also tell you that Auditory Processing disorder can't be tested until minimally age 5 (and sometimes later depending on the kiddo). Most of the norms are for age 6 or 7 and up. Glad you are going through CPSE program. Your OT and SLP will be on top of things. All the EI therapy will have provided your little guy with the best possible outcome, whatever that may be.
Avatar f tn the antipsychotic Risperdal, the antidepressant Prozac, two sleeping medicines and one for attention-deficit disorder. All by the time he was 3. He was sedated, drooling and overweight from the side effects of the antipsychotic medicine. Although his mother, Brandy Warren, had been at her “wit’s end” when she resorted to the drug treatment, she began to worry about Kyle’s altered personality. “All I had was a medicated little boy,” Ms. Warren said. “I didn’t have my son.
Avatar f tn More information about drug safety and efficacy in preschoolers could be a few years away. Researchers are hoping to launch a nationwide trial of Ritalin in 3- to 5-year-olds as early as this summer. But more scientific conclusions will do little to mollify those who believe the drugging of America has reached a new low.
892215 tn?1389722306 ) It is called Interferon-induced attention deficit disorder...(Seriously!) Just for myself, I found I had a 24 hour window before the full effects of the interferon kicked in. I would give myself my shot just before bedtime (so the worst of the chills and aches passed during the night) and an hour after I'd taken an extra-strength Tylenol. The first 3-4 days after the shot were the worst days of fatigue and, by the end of the week, I was feeling much better and was able to do about 1/2 speed...
Avatar f tn 'Basically' the way Adderall works when someone has attention deficit hyperactivity disorder - ADHD, is by slowing down their hyper brain functions, so their thoughts, impulsivity, hyperactivity, behaviours etc no longer run so fast that they are not in control.... But when some one who doesn't have hyper brain functions (ADHD) takes Adderall, what they experience is the opposite effect and they speed up, they feel more energetic, their thoughts runs faster, recall more clearly etc etc.
Avatar n tn He requires a lot of positive reinforcement and like I mentioned one on one attention to stay focused. He was five in April...he may be a bit younger...but he looks older...he communicates on a 2nd or 3rd grade level... He does struggle with reading/writing...it takes a lot of repetition...his writing is O.K. as long as he is being observed closely and reminded to write nicely. We have noticed he writes some things backwards...E and 3...S and 2...6 and 9...6 and 8...S and 5...
Avatar f tn I work with kids who have been diagnosed with ADD, autism and behavioral problems, so I am used to dealing with 3 year olds playing with their poop. My understanding is that it is a sensory thing, but now my daughter who is six just started doing the same. It all started when she got the stomach flu and she spends the whole day with the runs. Since then my husband and I have found poop smeared all around the toilet, next to the sink and even in her bedroom all.
Avatar n tn My mom died last halloween in 2005 and my dad died in july of this year. Its just weird cuz it started in the spring and it hasnt gotten any better. Like today my face hurts and Im tierd. I just want a break. I got my tonsills looked at and they are fine so I honestly dont know what it is. Im almost possible it has something to do with my ears and sinuses. I though at first it was chronic fatigue syndrome but I dont know. When I dont feel like **** I feel great.
Avatar n tn I am a 34 year-old active, white female, average height, very healthy weight. I had an interior carotid dissection over a week ago, they think from a sports trauma (though I didn't do anything where I knowingly hurt myself). Luckily, I have 100% collateral blood flow, no brain damage, no shifting, etc...best possible outcome. Interestingly, in addition, I have tested positive for antiphospholipid antibodies (after testing false-positive for syphilis---common, who knew).
Avatar n tn I have had many of the same symptoms as all of you. I am very weak and even typing this is difficullt. I have gone down hill in the past week. My autonomic NS has been acting up also. I go from constipation to diarrhea on and off. I am trying to get in to a new neurologist at Mass General Hospital. They said hopefully before Christmas. I hope to not get any more weak before then. I did go to a neurologist last Friday who said I have polyneuropathy.
Avatar f tn I haven't had that tickle and itchy feeling in about 3 days and the teeth pushing together thing in about 4 days. my lip hurts like its chapped and burning, but im happy about that. i know i still have at least 2 or 3 more weeks, possibly more before im 100% healed. its just a matter of waiting and being patient. hope you all have a speedy recovery.
162948 tn?1205256292 After we had her, I had the mirena put in in Dec. 04. Had it taken out oct 07, so it was in for about 3 years. No period whatsoever the entire time (thank god). After I had it removed, I had a period the following month, and have had a regular one since. My husband and I have done nothing to prevent pregnancy, both secretly wanting another, but have had no luck. Period still comes like normal. I am now starting to worry that I won't be able to have another?
